Quick Cheese Tortellini Soup

This soup is so easy, you can throw it together in minutes, even at the last second on a busy morning. Opening up a container filled with these delicious, steaming flavours is like getting a big, warm hug from home. Look for packages of fresh tortellini in the refrigerated cases at the grocery store.
